Cherish Family 1936

I recently ran across this old Family Reunion picture from 1936.

Because there is over 100 relatives in the picture, I wanted to highlight my Grandparents.

I used one of the frames from the “Clear Mixers“.

After removing one side of the protective covering, I painted the edges with Antique Linen Distress Paint.  I glued a small piece of scrapbook paper under the painted side and trimmed it with an exact-o knife.  I gently sanded the edges with a sanding block and distressed it slightly with Vintage Photo Distress Ink before removing the second protective coating.

My grandfather is the one with the x and my grandmother is sitting to his left holding my Uncle Bill.  

I used the Chamberry Collection from Adorn it and a scalloped circle punch and a old border punch from Marvy Uchida.

Have a Creative Day,
